College Football Playoff announces new chairman, members of selection committee
Change is coming to the College Football Playoff selection committee.
On Tuesday, College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock announced that the committee will have four new members, as well as a new chairman for the upcoming season.
North Carolina State athletic director Boo Corrigan will be the chairman of the selection committee for the 2022 season. He replaces Iowa athletic director Gary Barta, who was chairing the committee for the past two seasons.
In addition to the change of chairman, there are four new members to be welcomed to the selection committee. That includes Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel.
The Wolverines made their first College Football Playoff appearance in 2021.
Along with Manuel, Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk; former Ohio, Wake Forest and Baylor head coach Jim Grobe; and longtime USA Today sportswriter Kelly Whiteside have been named as members to the selection committee.
The College Football Playoff will be entering its ninth year in 2022, initially kicking off following the 2014 season. That year, Ohio State claimed the national championship.
This year, Georgia defeated Alabama in the National Championship Game to claim its first title in over 40 years.
